Invisible Lines by Mary Amato
(ARC/Released October 2009/Egmont)
For Trevor Musgrove, life isn't always bright and cheerful. His family has just moved to Hedley Gardens, a tough housing project its residents call "Deadly Gardens. " He goes to school with rich kids who have everything, while he has to work just to afford soccer cleats. It doesn't help that the best athlete in school, Xander Pierce, happens to have it out for him. Mistankenly enrolled in an advanced science class taught by an odd but engaging teacher, Trevor is thrown headfirst into the world of natural science. Through all this, he will learn that life can sprin up in the darkest places - maybe even Deadly Gardens.
Thanks for Beth at Goodman Media for sending this to me for review. I've never read anything by Mary Amato before. If you have, what did you think of her books?
